a couple of days ago. tens of thousands of americans who think they have health insurance under obama care may discover january 1 that they do not. after days of refusing to release the stats on the problems that have been plaguing health care.gov the administration has announced under pressure from the press that the enrollments of 1 of every 4 people in the months of october and november were botched. at least one of every four. now since then they say at least one of every ten federal applications have had problems, since the fix. they think the number is higher in the state exchanges. a reporter pressed the agency in charge of the exchanges, the federal exchange for a solution to the mess. people think they have the coverage. they don't have the coverage. the insurer has a botched form. it doesn't have a name so it can't call the person to tell them, it didn't work for you. here was the answer. >> but you're not saying everyone should call. you're not suggesting urging them strongly despite the fact you are talking about a potential one in ten error rate going forward? >> i would encou
or disprove of obama care. 57% disapprove. they were asked if they believe things will worsen under obama care with. look at this. they want him out of office. 40% want him out. so you look at these cumulatively, they have picked up on congresswoman how the law is impacting everybody. why won't we hit the reset button. why doesn't anybody want to do that? >> we keep trying n. the house we continually go to the floor and vote to repeal and replace a different component of this. you know, they get so upset they will say, we have 40 votes, 50 to do that. what the american p want. it's what our constituents want. coast to coast we hear the law doesn't work. it is too expensive to afford. it is decreasing access, increasing cost. they want to make sure and this is limiting their ability to do so. they don't want government making the choices for them. this is what's happening. people don't like it. >> let's go to the hearings today. we learned among other things the website fix -- and we'll have experts on next. the website fix made security for those people that go on it worse. help me out. is tha
whose baby was denied coverage under obama care? >> those family plan quotes included myself, my wife, our 7, 5, and 7-year-old, and 18 month-old was left off. the response was no, they don't allow family plans under the age of 8. >> this guy tried to sign his family up for insurance on the new york state exchange and they refused to enroll his 18 month-old baby? obama care is anti-toddler? the story, as you might imagine, got a lot of pickup in the right wing media. the post surfaced again and again all over conservative press and of course landed distraught father on fox news. even the house speaker john boehner climbed on board the obama hates toddlers bandwagon, after saying he learned obama wouldn't cover his baby. now, hearing this story you may ask yourself the question any journalist writing the story or producer doing a segment about it, or any person with just basic common sense would be asking, could it possibly be the case that obama was denying coverage to a toddler? well, the answer, that very good question is no, of course not. of course not, that is not true. a spokesp
out of thin air. there are about five different constitutional violations there. under obama care, he extended the employer mandate for a year, even though the law says shall commence in each month there after through december 2013. he extended the individual mandate, stretched it out. now the small package plans, he declared the senate to not be in session, to make his recess appointments, and the constitution says that the senate shall make its own rules. that is just some of the violations we have. it is a long list from this president, an uber president with no respect or little respect for the constitution itself, sean. >> all right, so you have a president re-writing laws at a whim. and he is not using the traditional historical checks and balances and separation of powers. then he is re-writing laws and enforcing other laws. then he decides, well, i don't care if you're in session or not. congressman, what do you think? any other areas you think of? >> well, listen, the take care clause requires the president to faithfully execute all the laws. it is established principle of co
. >> but the question is, is it an abdication of duty? the extension he is granting under obama care, just issuing, or is this within his discretion? because there is case law that these administrative-type things, postponement of tax collection, which he could say this is, that that is all okay to do administratively with the stroke of a pen? >> well, it is a matter of degree. there is no question there is a certain amount of discretion, the constitution requires that the president take care to faithfully execute the laws, that doesn't mean completely execute, but faithfully execute means to follow the congressional intent, and when the congressional intent is not re flected in how he expects the law to work out he doesn't have the authority to change it. he needs to come back to congress, why? because there is a great divide in congress over the obama care and he needs to negotiate. that is what the legislative branch is for, though, to make those hard negotiations and the lawmakers have the authority to pass the laws. >> there is a reason we have divided government. what is the difference betwe
was premiums were too high. under obama care, the premiums are higher. i don't see any way obama care can work. >> reporter: and another promise president obama made that turned out not to be true was put in the spotlight today on "fox news sunday." did he not say, if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor. >> he didn't say you could have unlimited choice. >> simple yes or no. >> yes. but look, if it you want to pay more for an insurance company that covers your doctor, you can do that. >> reporter: also today insurance brokers are complaining they're having trouble helping their clients because of troubles at the back end of the obama care enrollment process. >> so obviously the problems from obama care are still far from resochld. but according to one architect of the health care, he says all the white house needs is good old-fashioned public relations. our political insiders will weigh in on that. and i'll ask them a good question, what exactly would work at this point in the way of pr. tweet your thoughts to us and we'll include some of your thoughts on the show. >>> and thousands a
koreans have been doing this under george w. bush and barack obama. this -- >> this -- >> how do you demonstrate strength with a regime with nuclear devices? what are you going to do? strength sounds good but it's -- >> the best way to get rid of this regime, which is just pure evil, the most evil regime on earth and of the last century is going to be that china has to decide they want north korea to fall. unfortunately the increasing cold war tension between the united states and china will make china cling to north korea over more and give the regime more of an insurance policy. >> i just feel for the family of this man. >> is there any encouragement that in the statement there was something about that if released to the united states, he would speak the truth? were they showing their hand there? governor richardson? >> no. i -- this is a pattern of the north koreans. they make some of these prisoners do confessions. they did it with kenneth bay. they've done it with mr. newman. this is par for the course. they basically feel they have enormous leverage over you. and you know, you'
. >> the audio was released today under court order after a legal fight by the associated press. 20-year-old adam lanza murdered 20 children, six educators and his mother before killing himself. >>> up next, is the obama care website a hacker's paradise? >>> but first, here's what some of our fox affiliates across the country are covering tonight. kttv in los angeles with the latest on the car crash that killed actor paul walker. autopsy results say he was killed by the combined effects of the impact and subsequent fire. investigators are still trying to determine what caused that car to careen out of control. wsvn in miami with nearly four dozen pilot whales stranded in shallow water in a remote area of florida's everglades national park. ten have already died. workers are trying to coax the remaining whales back into deeper water. >>> and this is a live look at eden prairie, minnesota, from fox 9. the big story there tonight is the storm that has spread about two feet of snow in northeastern minnesota. heavy snow and ice have contributed to hundreds of traffic accidents around that state and we
parents who couldn't get their toddler covered under obama care. then it went on tv. >> how is it possible that you go to look for an insurance plan and baby erin is not covered? can you walk us through that? >> it was nightmare. >> being a parent and having four children, to find out that your baby is not going to be on the plan is quite distressing. >> this story was all over the place. even john boehner got in on it tweeting quote, i couldn't believe what i was being told. a dad who learned obama care wouldn't cover his baby. but that turned out to be totally false too. why? the father's application listed only three children. turns out he has four. oops. now we come to expect these bogus stories from conservative media. but from the speaker of the house? speaker boehner, did you think we wouldn't notice you are stuck inside the right wing media bubble? nice try, but it's bursting, because we got you. i don't like the ups and downs of the market, but i can't just sit on my cash. i want to be prepared for the long haul. ishares minimum volatility etfs. investments designed for a smoother
. >> there's no doubt that under president obama our country is falling into what i'll call a new normal. economic growth, high unemployment, stagnant wages. >> is that the new economy? is that recovery? >> that's the way the economy looked about three months ago. i think that latest news has been significantly better than that. and i would say that it's really a challenge to both parties. i think that democrats and the people have been saying that we have secular stagnation and need a much bigger stimulus and stuck in this new normal, too. i think everybody is ursurprise by the good news. nobody figured out what the political story is. >> i don't think he's wrong that economy remains pretty weak. >> it's not a new normal in my view. >> you think it will get better? >> absolutely. i mean i am -- as convicted as i've ever been about the state of american economy. we have come a long way from righting the wrong that's got us into this mess. american companies are competitive. i can feel confidence coming back. as soon as we do, we're going to get stronger. >> enough talk like this everybod
. >> reporter: but republicans argue the president should look in the mirror. >> under president obama, our country has fallen into what i'll call a new normal. slow economic growth, high unemployment, stagnant wages. >> people on the streets right now are protesting because they want a higher minimum wage. they are saying they're not feeling it. >> the fact is the president has long supported policies and continues to support policies and has taken action on policies that go right at this issue. that work is not done. >> reporter: and there was one small glimmer of hope for bipartisanship on the economy. president obama called for an extension of the unemployment benefits by the end of the year and after hearing that house speaker john boehner said he will take a look at it. the way things have been going here in washington lately, wolf, that almost qualifies as a holiday miracle. >> that's a good point as well. jim acosta, thanks very much. gloria borger is here. she's our chief political analyst. why isn't the white house, gloria, making more of these positive numbers? >> you know, as ji
in washington, meantime, president obama giving the odds of achieving a long-term agreement with iran 50/50 at best. >>> meantime, the pentagon under fire tonight for its decision to buy combat helicopters made in russia. lawmakers on both sides, asking, why not made in america? here tonight, abc's aditi roy. >> reporter: tonight, new questions arise as to why the pentagon chose to spend more than $1 billion on dozens of russian mi-17 helicopters, to support afghan troops, bypassing u.s. manufacturers. the defense department signed the deal more than two years ago and pentagon officials defended the move, citing a 2010 top secret study, which they said recommended the russian helicopter as the top choice. but the associated press has obtained excerpts of the study, which said the u.s. manufactured chinook helicopter was the, quote, most cost effective single platform type fleet for the afghan air force over a 20-year period. the russian deal sparking outrage in congress, as lawmakers pressed officials during defense department budget hearings in april. >> with all the tens of billions of

"w," years and years. this is under jim nicholson they were talking about doing this. this is not obama, and you can't have it both ways. the republicans cannot say why did we not pay attention to valid security concerns in benghazi, but now when there are valid security concerns in italy, we should disregard those and, you know, keeping a good face on having this big building. >> let's get back to charlie -- >> here's a question i have -- >> charlie, can you hear me? >> this is a good -- >> can you hear me? >> yes. >> charlie, let's play one of the things where you reverse the tape. suppose the embassy over there to the vatican got hit and it came out that they were thinking of putting it behind the protective walls of the italian embassy compound, it would have been much safer there, but they decided not to do it. who would have been blamed then? just a thought. >> right. of course. of course. consolidating is wise for security reasons, cost savings are needed everywhere. it's a no-brainer. all i'm talking about is the packaging on this. if you remember the referenm
here and act out to survive their party. >> obama care working in california is one of the success stories not getting the attention it deserves. but the single must under covered story is this. the affordable care act will cost less than was originally projected because it appears the effect of the law on health care costs. today the president touted this development. >> health care costs are riding at the lowest rate in 50 years. so we're bending the cost of health care overall which benefits everybody. >> a round of applause. sally cone is joining me. dean, i will begin with you. we should say that the slow increase in rate and spending care, we don't know what they are fully yet. but explain to folks how big a deal this is with the cbo now downward revising it's projections out into the future. >> this is huge. we have seen the sharpest slow down in health care costs in post world war ii history. the difference between the projections in 2008 and what we think we're going to pay this year, it is $550 per person. $2200 for a family of four. is obama care responsible for all of t
together. thank you very much for your extraordinary efforts. appreciate it. >> president obama on global aids day. what he did not announce in announcing 6. 7 people now supporting with treatment under pep far, the program started under president bush, he did not announce a target some aids activists are hoping for of reaching and supporting 12 million people by 2016 and he did not announce more support for the global aids fund which was $2 billion shy in u.s. support according to the $15 billion goal that was long hoped for by aids activists. this is global aids day and president, secretary of state will also be speaking at this white house event. meanwhile the president has a lot of other foreign challenges on his plate. he's trying to stop members of his party from leading bipartisan effort to pass new sanctions on iran before christmas. the president arguments this would be a deal breaker during a sensitive testing period. just as president biden dealing with another foreign policy headaches on the other side of the world. he arrived in tokyo. he was met when he arrived there by caro
might remember this, under my plan of a cap and trade system electricity rates would skyrocket. that was barack obama in january of 2008. we have a chart of electricity prices right now if we can. they are right now believe it or not at all time highs. people and not talking about it but they will soon. interestingly at the end of the day the epa a cash am out with an announcement that they will be flexible on these new rules and will give states greater with respect to this stuff. going higher and higher and other things going on in the economy, maybe they will pull back a little bit and that will be good for these coal companies particularly natural resources, today it is a 75% even before this news i thought they were turning the corner, they weather the storm. next year fiscal year the consensus is the will make $2.03, two month ago the consensus was $1.25, wall street is coming around to the idea that the bottom line which we know a lot of that was cost savings and things like that but maybe they weathered the storm. this stock is off to the races. lori: what about the fun
. here she is enacting this or putting up this notion somehow there was something done under the table here. something unconstitutional and unknown before this moment. >> sure. well, i think one of the criticisms that conservatives had is the obama administration has used its executive authority to tinker with the law in where they think congress should have a say. some of this criticism reaches well beyond logic. let's go back to sarah palin. the notion death panels are in there. the first she referred to was end of life consultations. that was stripped from the legislation because of the uproar she caused. it's not in there now. but years later she's acting as if it is. so there's a bit of lunacy to these criticisms. it's not based in fact at all. that's what clouds this debate. you don't know what are pure fabrications or gripes. >> don't you think party appeal, sam, of sarah palin is she doesn't give a rat's butt what the facts are. and i think that is her wild attraction. she's almost squirrely in that way that she wants to say wild things. we'll say that's not true. she'll just c
